2014 Inertia   Our 2014 Inertia is a Bordeaux blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Cabernet Franc and 15% Merlot.   Bing cherries and chocolate impress immediately in the nose while plum and blueberries grace the supple palate.  French oak was used and it gives the wine a creamy richness.  Basically, it’s German Chocolate Cake in a glass.  Decadence is on display in the form of smooth tannins and a rich mouth feel.   Bottled unfiltered.

Our Old Clone Zinfandel is an all estate wine made from the oldest Zinfandel vines in Nevada County, planted in 1980.  This 100% varietal shows a sense of place and highlights the fabulous characteristics of foothill Zinfandel.  Spicy dark red fruit, medium body and well-integrated, spicy tannins (did we say spicy yet?)

 The lovely 2016 growing season produced a Petite that is rich, opulent and ready to drink.  50% of the fruit for this wine came from our dry farmed vines, (which means we don’t irrigate them) so the wine is concentrated and full bodied, while the other 50% came ­from our head trained hill side vines, which imprints an aromatic spice character.   Dark spices of chocolate and pepper swirl out of the glass while blackberry pie and root beer await your palate.   Although being known as an age-worthy variety, this bottling is ready to enjoy now with hearty pastas, grilled meats or hard cheeses.  But don’t be afraid to age this one as well.  Treats will reveal themselves for years to come.

Dick Cooper basically created the Barbera uprising in the sierra foothills, and his fruit is now highly sought after.  This wine is a medium bodied, graceful gem. It’s loaded with black cherries and chocolate spice with smooth tannins and a polished finish. Since it’s a young wine, its loaded with freshness and an intensity that you will surely notice immediately.  Enjoy with hearty red pasta dishes or some pizza.
